Born in New York and a son of Cuban immigrants, I became interested in photography at the age of 18 and occasionally experimented with this art form . At the age of 53, I took courses in digital photography and developed a passion for the media. Capturing the beauty of natural landscapes and wildlife is what fascinates and challenges me most, although I do try to capture wide ranging subjects that provide a glimpse into the assortment of the diverse beauty in the world.
